Handmade masa and housemade tortillas—both corn and flour varieties—are the touchstones at Gorditas La Tia Susy, an unassuming, red-walled McKinley Park storefront specializing in Durango-style street food. When you place your order for a burrito ($6) stuffed with mashed pinto beans and juicy hunks of carne asada or a chorizo verde gordita ($3.50), your pita-like pocket or tortilla gets pounded out and griddled on the spot. The result? Tender, flaky, blistered perfection.
